Blurring the lines between artifice and reality, hausfrau is the pop construct of Glasgow based artist Claudia Nova. Themes of darkness and light are mutated into sensual shades by synth projections and Nova's powerful voice, drawing the listener into a quasi sado-masochistic relationship with the performer-as-oracle. 

Transitioning deftly from a delicate whisper to a soaring, controlled serenade, Nova brings depth and substance to the sparse foundations of both her own compositions and the select re-interpretations that make up her debut album "Night Tides".

Recorded at Glasgow's Green Door Studios (Sons & Daughters, Casual Sex, Golden Teacher, Amazing Snakeheads) and featuring guest appearances from members of Altered Images, Remember Remember and Eugene Tombs, "Night Tides" takes cues from electronic music alchemists like Throbbing Gristle, Fad Gadget and Suicide and fuses it with the heart and emotion of timeless torch-singers such as Dusty Springfield, Julee Cruise and Siouxsie Sioux.

With "Night Tides", hausfrau explores and exploits the stark, beating heart of the dark dance.
